After a successful crossing of the Coast to Coast in May this year, I've decided to do the Cleveland Way in early September.

I'll probably start/finish at Saltburn-by-the-Sea, getting the bus from Scarborough to Helmsley. I'm also camping all the way, maybe do some wild-camping where possible.

If you want, you can actually walk a complete loop using the path leaving the Way on the north side of Scarborough going all the way to Helmsley.

Yes, I like the idea of doing a complete loop. But I'm a bit short on time to do that, I need to get back home on the Friday, to get ready for a week-end walking in the Lake District, doing Striding Edge.

But Saltburn down to Scarborough, get a bus to Helmsley and so on to Saltburn will be fine.

Sorry, the Cleveland Way is now cancelled. The double Coast to Coast bike ride is taking place instead.

Oh, yes. It's still on, the Cleveland Way. Pity I was'nt doing the Coast to Coast. Oh well, the Cleveland Way is a nice walk and can still pop into the Bay Hotel watching you tired Coast to Coast walkers struggling on down the bank to the Bay.

I was thinking about walking the Cleveland Way in reverse this August, but due to the lack of walking this year. I may now be thinking of walking the Cleveland Way and the Tabular Hill's Walk instead, why not. Just thought, I would keep the Cleveland Way thread up to date.

A fine alternative. Free parking in Helmsley and some good scenery ... especially in late August when the heather will be out. Watch out for me en route ......... that is the only disadvantage that springs to mind!

I'm cycling the Coast to Coast from St. Bees to Robin Hood's Bay and that alone would be good as any. I've done the Coast to Coast walk now 6 times and probably time for a change.

If, I go for the Cleveland Way c/w Tabular Hills Walk, then I will start & finish at Saltburn by the Sea. I may fancy doing the walk, anti-clockwise, which would be different.

The Horseshoes at Levisham is now (very) walker friendly, good ale but a tad too expensive for a casual meal (great for an evening one though). The Saltersgate Inn is still closed. Chequers appears to have stopped being a tea room, unless the new owner has decided to reopen it.

If, I decide on the Cleveland Way, which is looking very likely. I'm seeking out any basic camp sites on the Tabular Hills Walk section, does the Horseshoe Inn still permit camping, I need a camp site in the Hutton le Hole area. The rest of the Cleveland Way, I know of camp sites on the way.

The previous owner of the Horseshoes tried to turn it into a country hotel. In the process his wife acquired her own webpage populated by aggrieved patrons who gave some of the most biting comments imaginable. It was made quite clear that walkers, cyclists, motorcyclists. locals, dogwalkers etc etc were not welcome and, consequently, he lost all his trade. The camping site was one of the earliest casualties.

The new owners are walker friendly and have created a heated patio for walkers to sit on if they wish to stay outside (the area outside around the flag is again available too). Sadly, the camp site is now a carpark.

The alternatives.

The Steads at Fairfield Farm have a camping field available. No facilities at all (no toilets washing facilities etc) Accessible from Farwath by a good track. Close to the Fox and Rabbit for meals.

There is a basic site (toilet and shower) behind High Horcum Farm
Accessible from the path down Dundale Griff turning right up the slant track before Low Horcum (6 a night last year)

Marfitt Head has a full facility (in terms of a toilet and wash block) site half a mile further north west of the road. (10 last year).

Hutton is far more problematic.

Hutton is far more problematic. The Stricklands have a site at Westfield Farm just south of the village, probably the best bet. Google it and see what you think.

Other than that you have a long detour to find a site around Hutton. There is a small caravan site behind the old garage. I have not seen tents on it, but it might just take you. I don't think it has any facilities but there is a pub and a loo in the village. The owner is called Woods. The local TIC based in the Rydale Folk Museum will give you his number if you call them.

Hope this helps.

The double entry explains why my computer stopped working. I must have pressed submit by mistake! It's been a long, hot day.

Cheers for that info, SC. I will look into the Steads and High Horcum farm. Stricklands, I will do a Google. Guess, it will be pot luck on the day. But, hey thanks for the info given, you are a gem. wink
